The name, “Nemo” that Verne used in his 20K had some interesting allusions and origins. I estimate many members have known “Nemo” is a Latin language,nautilus1954r
Regarding the place Nemo and his crew had been jailed in the story, Verne had not explained the details in his book. And Earl Felton described the name of thisnautilus1954r
In 1986, I played a major part in the 20,000 Leagues Production Team Reunion, bringing together the surviving LEAGUES crew people for a special screening held at the studio. And because of my knowledge of the making of the film, I was asked to be the historical consultant on the 20,000 LEAGUES Special Edition DVD. More recently, I wrote a 3-part 33-page series for FILMFAX Magazine (appearing in issues No. 111 July/Sept 2006, No. 112 Oct/Dec 2006, and No. 113 Jan/March 2007).
